Your future starts now!
Cancer is of the most complex, feared, and devastating diseases affecting humanity. In the United States alone, about two million new cancer cases are diagnosed each year, and about 600,000 are projected to die of cancer (about 1,600 daily). The best intellectual and technological resources are focused on eliminating cancer through increased understanding, prevention, detection, and treatment. Cancer investigators are working together to address this challenge effectively. They have formed collaborative teams across diverse fields of study (e.g., developmental, biochemical, cell and molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, epidemiology, genetics, and many others). This multidisciplinary approach provides diverse research opportunities and has made enormous strides in our understanding of cancer biology. Still, some of the most important discoveries await the next generation of scientists.
The Biochemistry and Cancer Biology program (BCB) of Augusta University offers some of the best technological facilities in the world and the innovative training needed to make significant contributions to this critical field of discovery. Joining the BCB team will expand your intellectual horizons and explore the limits of your potential as a next-generation cancer researcher.
"Each student who joins the BCB program becomes a part of a family that works together
to ensure that students are not only successful, but enjoy the journey."

"We have a very welcoming tight-knit cancer community that fosters the growth of our
students to become leading cancer researchers. I look forward to you being a part
of our research team. "

"One of my favorite memories was traveling as a lab to the AACR conference in Chicago
this past April. Three members from our lab presented posters and we were able to
all support each other and learn about some amazing advances in all areas of Cancer
Research together." - Daley Morera
